"Keep it simple, but flavorful"
In 1967 Adilio Gonzalez and his family left Cuba for a better life in the United States. After several years of factory work he opened a small grocery store on the corner of Grove and Bay Street. In 1980 he moved the store across the street and opened La Conguita Restaurant in its place. The original restaurant had 7 tables with a short lunch counter and it soon became a neighborhood favorite for its authentic latin food. Many things have changed since then, including the renaming of the corner to Adilio Gonzalez Plaza, but our philosophy remains the same: keep it simple but flavorful. We hope you enjoy our food as much as we enjoy preparing it.
